How a Budget Resolution Doesn’t Go to Conference

Senate Democrats frustrated by Republican objections to forming a House-Senate conference committee on the budget have made a cartoon anthropomorphizing their long-suffering budget resolution.

It’s sort of the “How a Budget Resolution Doesn’t Become A Law” version of “How a Bill Becomes a Law.”

In the animated video “I’m Just a Budget,” the said budget resolution sings a song about why he hasn’t been able to go to Congress 100 days after the Senate passed him.

It features Senate floor cameos from Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, offering their pleas for “regular order,” followed by quick clips of Sens. Randy Paul, R-Ky., Ted Cruz, R-Texas; and Pat Toomey, R-Pa., saying “I object” to unanimous consent agreements to send the resolution to a conference with the House.

    Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
